Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American poet, essayist, and general knowledgeable person, whom I don’t actually know that much about. However, I do know that I really like his quote. I believe that the most that we can ever hope for is to live a fulfilling life, and for our memories to live on in the ones we eventually leave behind. The definition of a fulfilling life is different for each person, so write your own definition and strive towards it every moment you’re alive. Make the most out of life; make a difference, at least in the world of those around you; and enjoy every minute you can!
